Smart Fabric Shopping: Buy Now, Quilt Later!

Hey there, fabulous fabric fanatics! Welcome to our How To'sDay where we dive into the delightful dilemma of buying fabrics without a project in mind. It's a quilter's tale – that irresistible pull towards a fabric that whispers sweet nothings about future quilts. Lisa from Lori's Country Cottage is our guide today, sharing her wisdom on how to navigate this colorful conundrum. We're not just talking about tossing fabrics into your cart willy-nilly; we're about making thoughtful choices that open up a world of creative quilting possibilities later on.

In this demo, we're exploring how to balance impulse buys with practical planning. From ensuring you've got enough for a 90 by 90 quilt's borders and binding to mixing print sizes for depth and interest. Plus, we'll share why it's a smart move to always buy a bit extra (because who hasn't run out of that perfect print mid-project?). And for those who love a good color theme or struggle with matching grays, we've got tips that'll save you from future fabric-matching headaches.

We'll sprinkle in some fresh, innovative project ideas like quilted fabric book covers and patchwork tote bags – perfect for those bits and bobs you just had to have. So, whether you're a seasoned quilter or just starting out, this demo is packed with insights, tips, and tricks to make your fabric shopping more intentional, creative, and fun. Let's get ready to fill our stashes with confidence, one fabric yard at a time. Fire up your sewing machines, and let's turn those "someday" fabrics into "today" masterpieces!
